      Sure sounds good!

      Some carbon panels (hood, fenders, roof, trunk). Drop a few pounds, add a cage. Would be a track monster

      Good luck, figure $75k-$80k base....then add in typical Ford ADM of $20k-$30k + over msrp for awhile. Assuming its a limited production car.

      I wonder if it will be able to not overheat unlike the Z06, last couple gt500s.

      Looks to be amazing. Cars are so great right now

      I like it better without the rear wing


      Curious if the aftermarket tuners can hit 1000whp with this setup.
      Also curious how much the DCT will hold

      The '17+ Z06s with the secondary radiators don't overheat and neither do the ZR1's or ZL1's. Judging by the amount of grill space on the front end of this thing, I doubt it'll be a problem.

      So is this a bespoke transmission or what else is it equipped in?

      Also 420mm brakes, wow

      My guess is that it's the DCT from the Ford GT

      The Ford GT trans is made by Getrag, and is actually the same one used in the Ferrari 488, AMG GT, and others.


      This new Mustang DCT is made by Tremec. The new mid engine Corvette I believe will use a version of this transmission as well.

      Similar approach to Porsche, where the GT350 (=GT3), GT350R (=GT3 RS), and the GT500 (=GT2 RS). Much more track oriented than I was expecting.
      My thoughts exactly!

      I think you might be a tad low. Base on the 350R is $67k with the electronics package (now a required option). I figure the engine and the transmission add a good $15k. So $82-$85k. Of course, that assumes carbon fiber wheels. Without the CF track pack and wheels, maybe $75k is right. But add the CF pack with Recaro seats and it’s gotta be $85k to 90k. Hell, the Z06 is $80K base! We shall see!

      Yea pretty much.

      And Bullitt vs. Mustang GT is sort of like a 911GTS vs. 911S in function and relative price in the model range.

      Talked to a good friend of mine who has a pretty cool bunch of cars already and will be putting a deposit down on one as soon as he can. He does a TON of business with a particular "mom and pop" Ford dealer here local so i'm going to assume there will be no dealer add-on either. Unfortunately it's going to be a garage queen for the most part but that's just how he is. He did say I could drive it though.

      An unnamed TCL member sent me these. Being shown in Scottsdale. Damn it’s beautiful. And not just because it looks like my 350R.

      Interesting facts in this Topspeed article. More downforce than a Ford GT! No flat-plane crank?

      Flat plane crank is only in the GT350. The Aluminator crate engine based on the Voodoo engine has a cross plane crank as well. Ford wants the 350 to exclusively be the only car with a flat plane crank.

      That said, that GT500 sounds every bit as beastly as the GT350. The sound differences are shockingly small.
